Over 50s Health and Activities

The Big 50means it is time to focus on your health and wellbeing and setting aside time for healthy activities and meals. An Australian study has found that walking for two and a half hours a week can significantly improve memory problems in the over-50s. It has been known for a long time that exercise is a great way to improve cardiovascular health, but it may also be that it also protects against the ageing brain.

Healthy Eating

Buy fruit or Vegetables each day if possible or at least 2 times a week, it is important to realise that once they are harvested they start to loose not only their freshness but more importantly their essential nutrients, don't soak vegies long before cooking and leave skin on where possible.

Support Aussie Farmers

Aussie Farmers Direct supply fresh Australian made and grown food at least twice a week to your neighbourhood.

Depression and Anxiety

"Why do I feel like this?" It almost seems unfair. Even others around you who seem far worse off are happy and content, but you just feel so down and depressed.

Are panic attacks upsetting you or someone you love?

Do not be afraid or slow in seeking help and trying a number of options to fully appreciate and understand your situation and the possible help.

Carers provide unpaid care and support to family members and friends who have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness, an alcohol or other drug issue or who are frail aged.

Looking After the 'Vehicle'

The body is a living machine, the vehicle for life, and needs certain ingredients to perform the many duties it has on a daily basis, we can do a lot to ensure a healthy system by changing our eating habits, getting fresh air and sunshine.

Even with a busy schedule it is important to fit this into your daily routine, also cut down sugar and fat intake. (Note; it is important to know which foods have hidden content). You could start by replacing one meal a week with a fresh homemade salad (do not buy pre-made salads, most have a fat content and may not be fresh) add lean skinless chicken, or trimmed ham, and it is also wise to eat at least one piece of fresh in-season fruit on a daily basis.
